A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

Even Etsy's IPO process is artisinal. "The Brooklyn, N.Y.-based online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods has altered the playbook for its initial public offering, launching an expansive effort to attract small investors." [The Wall Street Journal]

How "You Do You" perfectly captures our narcissistic culture. "Classify your antagonists as haters and your flaws are absolved by their greater sin of envy." [The New York Times]

Apple's Tim Cook leads different. "What Cook found out is that there is no preparation for the scrutiny that comes with succeeding a legend. “I have thick skin,” he says, “but it got thicker." [Fortune]

Stop trying to find your true self at work. "The true self is both a gift and a surprise . . . We have taken context out of it. The true self has turned from a gift into an accomplishment, from a fleeting experience of possibility into an enduring image of who we are." [Harvard Business Review]

Noteworthy from The Splendid Collective:
